For some, hidden gluten and casein can be the cause of occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion. However, the right digestive enzymes can make a difference when trying to support a gluten free and casein free lifestyle. Gluten and casein are found where you'd never expect them - salad dressings, cold cuts - even toothpaste! Similase® GFCF features DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase) activity, from a protease enzyme specific to digestion of gluten and casein.Similase® GFCF also includes a complete range of digestive enzymes. Competing products only tackle gluten - Similase® GFCF helps you digest other proteins, fats and carbohydrates as well.
Dr. Gladd Says
Similase GF/CF is a digestive enzyme that contains DPP IV, a special enzyme that in the lab can break down gluten and dairy. It is not for enabling sensitive people or celiac patients to consume these foods, rather it is support for when eating out or at someone else's home where you cannot guarantee there is some contamination.
SUGGESTED USE: Take 2 UltraCaps™ with each meal or as directed by your healthcare practitioner
Caution: While Similase GFCF will reduce the level of reactive gliadin and gluten proteins in a meal, it is advised that celiac disease sufferers continue with their normal gluten exclusion diet as even small amounts of gliadin can cause adverse reactions in the most sensitized individuals. If pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
